H*A*P*P*Y *** B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y *** K*A*T*E
My sweet baby is one. How does this happen? Yes, time flies, but the first year is so amazing to me. You go from watching the minutes on the clock night and day for feedings, changing, burping, wake times, nap times, cuddle times to this- a personality packed little being! This little one year old is becoming increasingly aware of her dependence on me. At the same time though, this coming year she will develop a desire for independence and will struggle to show her will more and more. It's so much work to be her mom, but oh so rewarding! I love this calling and wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world. I love you, Kate Noelani.
(you may wonder why I skip from one month old to 4 months... buying house, fixing house to move into, moving, senior doctrinals, graduation, trip to OR for oridination and visit, 4 weeks of camp and 2 of missions trips... that's why!!!)
5 months- sitting
5 1/2 months- crawling
6 months- on the go!
7 months- standing
8 and 9 months- walking around furniture, climbing, saying words
11 months- 9 teeth
The video below is just a sweet memory for me at 3 months- the first great giggles and squeals
